Medically Retired for 15yrs though still a younger bloke.
Married to a beaut lady since 1980; 3 children & 2 grand-children.
I trained in the Royal Australian Navy - Engineering branch.

Enjoy making wooden toys for children to play with, plus collect old and simple toy plans.

Also need more room for my machinery.

Enjoyed your comments on my D8. One of the first models I made was a 1/16 scale 325 CAT excavator that I designed. It was made as a present for a mans retirement, per his son. I made it out of Walnut, Cherry and sycamore. The son had mentioned painting itCAT yellow, however I showed him the natural wood and he was happy with it that way. I will post it some day. Later
